The Outsider
If you stick around in Hollywood long enough, keep in shape, log a solid amount of credits and act the part of a good soldier, maybe you, too, will receive your own starring vehicle. Of course, there’s no guarantee that vehicle will be in any way interesting, but consider it the show-business version of a gold watch, the example of a career spent punching the clock. For Craig Fairbrass, that moment comes with “The Outsider,” his very own leading part in an action picture alongside a pretty girl and decorated co-stars. Fairbrass, a lifer who has played heroes and henchmen alike, looks just as surprised as you.

Blood Ties
Well, it looks like David O. Russell's "American Hustle" is going to have a run for its money when it comes to sprawling '70s crime sagas that feature really silly hair and mustaches, as the new trailer has just dropped for Guillaume Canet's "Blood Ties," starring Clive Owen, Billy Crudup, Mila Kunis, Matthias Schoenaerts, Zoe Saldana, Marion Cotillard and James Caan. The film, which we were iffy about at Cannes, will be screening at the Toronto International Film Festival soon.

If there is any movie this year at Cannes that is absolutely brimming with promise on paper, it's Guillaume Canet's "Blood Ties." With an extended cast featuring Clive Owen, Billy Crudup, Mila Kunis, Matthias Schoenaerts, Zoe Saldana, James Caan, Marion Cotillard, Noah Emmerich and Lili Taylor among others along with a script co-written by James Gray, one wonders how it could go wrong. And while "Blood Ties" isn't a disaster, it's certainly a mess, a sprawling crime saga that endeavours to evoke the great character-driven movies of the 1970s, but never quite lives up to its epic scope.

Cannes you feel it? (Ha ha, groan). We're less than two weeks from red carpets being rolled out on the Croisette and with the lineup now firmed, all we can do is wait for the movies to arrive. And until that moment when the lights dim and the reels or digital bits unspool, these new images from Guillaume Canet's "Blood Ties" will hold it down.

No, this is not an April Fool's Day gag. Vanilla Ice -- oh sorry, Robert Van Winkle -- is getting into the acting biz. Seriously. And just wait until you read the character he'll playing -- but we're getting a bit ahead of ourselves.
